Once you’ve integrated with AWS Cloudwatch, you have access to all metrics for AWS CloudWatch metric streams, which provides real-time monitoring of your Amazon Web Services (AWS) resources and applications.

See all AWS integrations.

To verify metrics are reporting, search for the metrics in the Metric details section of the Project Settings page.

The following table shows the CloudWatch metric streams metrics ingested by Lightstep.

Metric Name Unit Description
aws.cloudwatchmetricstreams.metric_update count The number of metric updates sent to the metric stream.
aws.cloudwatchmetricstreams.total_metric_update integer This is determined by multiplying the value of the MetricUpdate by a sum derived from additional statistics that are streamed.
